They may wonder who you are, where the person they’ve always known has gone. But sometimes, it takes just one person, one thing, one moment, to change your outlook on the world and the person you are. That may not be the person others want you to be, but if you are truly going to find inner peace, it just might be who you need to be.

Tell Me Again
Tell me again,
You didn’t believe in me?
Didn’t think I had it in me?
Never believed I would succeed?
I mean, couldn’t you see that I am unique?
That my spirit is indomitable.
That I have an unwavering belief in myself.
That greatness was always a part of me?
Were you jealous because the moment you saw me, you knew I didn’t walk, I didn’t run, and I would never get caught in the rain because I soared above the clouds?
Didn’t you see you could never take my happiness from me?
That your opinion of me never mattered.
Every step I take confirms who I am.
I waste not one day.
I am not a passenger of destiny.
I take hold of my future, motivated to be better tomorrow than I am today.
I have never regretted taking a chance.
Because my failures do not define
me, instead, I am respected for my resolve because failure did not break me.
I embrace the journey and keep moving forward.
My dreams do not end when I wake; they begin.
So tell me again, you didn’t believe in me?
